The destruction of Thor’s weapon is a huge selling point for the film. Who is Thor without the power of Mjolnir? Is he even worth watching? The decision to strip him of arguably the most power weapon in the Marvel universe is a good one and will likely boost the character’s stock. His current dilemma is making him rely on his physical capabilities and intellect to see him through.
2) Thor’s New Look:
The refreshed look of Thor is intriguing and his new showcased armor and weaponry look awesome as well. This look gives Thor more of a gritty and dangerous persona. The strip of war paint over his left eye is a good touch as well. The helmet (shown in the trailer above) looks familiar and still gives a respectful nod to the comic book iteration of the character but in a more sleek and modern way.
1) Thor’s Reaction to the Hulk:
Marvel always has a way of bringing comedy in the equation at exactly the right time. Seeing Thor react so happily when seeing the Hulk was by far the best part of the trailer and to have the Hulk attack him anyway felt true to the green titan’s character. The “Gladiator-Hulk” persona is something fans have been waiting for and having him in movie with Thor is a brilliant strategy. Both characters have had an interesting relationship going back to the first Avenger movie and it will be interesting seeing them interact in this film.
